Cold River Radio Show, 5th Annual Mother’s Day Show
Sunday, May 14 , 7 p.m.

Cold River Radio Show live at Theater in the Woods. Tickets are $25 on sale at White Birch Books, call 603-356-3200.

The Cold River Radio Show is a quintessential old-time radio show featuring exclusively New England based artists, performers, authors and storytellers. Along with selling tickets at the store, we’ll be selling books at the show for Maine author Caitlin Shetterly, who will be talking about her latest book, Modified.

Modified takes a disquieting and meditative look at the issue that started the biggest food fight of our time–GMOs. From a journalist and mother who learned that genetically modified corn was the culprit behind what was making her and her child sick, a must-read book for anyone trying to parse the incendiary discussion about genetically modified foods.

Caitlin’s work has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Elle, and Self, and on Oprah.com and Medium.com, as well as on “This American Life” and various other public radio shows. She lives with her family in Maine.

White Birch Book’s 25th Anniversary Celebration   White Birch Book’s 25th Anniversary Celebration
Saturday, May 27

We are celebrating our 25th Anniversary here at the bookstore so we decided to do a little time traveling back to 1992, when the store first opened! What was on the best-seller list 25 years ago? What was our staff reading back then? Or better yet, what were we wearing while we were reading?

Well if you stop in on Saturday, May 27 you just may find out the answers! We will be celebrating all day and offering a 25% discount on 25 selected staff favorites, giveaways for adults and kids, fun activities AND more.

In the age of online everything including buying books we are really happy to say we have been in business in the Mt. Washington Valley for 25 years and we look forward to serving our community for another 25 and beyond!

Independent bookstores have always occupied a special place in communities and locally owned independent businesses pump money back into their communities by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases. That means more money for sound schools, green parks, strong police and fire departments, and smooth roads, all in your neighborhood.

So we encourage you to come join our celebration, show your community support and as always, shop local!

In college, Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny are inseparable. Twenty years later, their friendship takes a deadly turn. It’s Always the Husband, by Michelle Campbell is a brilliant and propulsive debut novel about the troubled friendship of three women and the aftermath when one of them is found dead. . . It will have you guessing “who did it” until the very last page.

Kate, Aubrey, and Jenny. They first met as college roommates and soon became inseparable, despite being as different as three women can be. Twenty years later, one of them is standing at the edge of a bridge, and someone else is urging them to jump.

How did things come to this?

As the novel cuts back and forth between their college years and their adult years, you see the exact reasons why these women love and hate each other—but can feelings that strong lead to murder? Or will everyone assume, as is often the case, that it’s always the husband?

A graduate of Harvard University and Stanford Law School, Michele Campbell worked at a prestigious Manhattan law firm before spending eight years fighting crime as a federal prosecutor in New York City.
